The Union from St John's

On Autumn Harvest AH 004
Old Songs & Bothy Ballads - Some Rants o Fun

Anita Best sings:

The population of Newfoundland has depended on the sea for a living and many of the songs in the repertoire reflect the hardships of the sea. This song tells of the wreck of a sailing ship, the Union from St John's.

1: Ye landsmen and ye landsmen bold,
'Tis little do yous know,
What we poor sailors do endure,
When the stormy winds do blow.
